NYWSE Book Club Launch Event

Announcing the NYWSE Book Club 2009-2010 Reading List!

The New York Women Social Entrepreneurs (NYWSE) Book Club reading list includes compelling narratives and resources, from the legal battles of Code Pink's fiery and inspiring co-founder to a primer on systems thinking.  The NYWSE Book Club will serve as a forum to engage NYWSE members in dynamic discussions about sustainability, leadership, women's issues, and new business models.  Participants will have the opportunity to share ideas and challenges with the group, and, in turn, learn from their peers in a safe space.

Each book club co-hort will consist of 5-8 participants and will meet bi-monthly.  Women who plan to register should feel comfortable opening their living rooms to a minimum of one book club group gathering.

NYWSE partnered with Chelsea Green, a niche publishing house that specializes in sustainability and green living topics, to offer books relevant to the NYWSE mission of empowering and promoting women social entrepreneurs and emerging sustainability leaders in the workplace.

Fee: US $150
The registration fee includes the cost of all the books. 
Participants will receive all the books in July at the NYWSE Book Club launch event.

To sign up for the NYWSE Book Club, email: newyorkcity@ywse.org
